California protests migrant transfers

By James Poulos | Cal Watchdog

Recent days have seen the immigration issue intensify. At Murrieta’s Border Patrol station, protestors repelled a convoy of Department of Homeland Security buses carrying detained migrants who illegally crossed the U.S. border into Texas.

Instead of dropping off 140 detainees every 72 hours as planned, authorities left Murrieta with full buses, rerouting to a San Ysidro facility near the Mexican border. From there, detainees will be distributed among four San Diego-area locations. What happens next is anyone’s guess.

It’s a striking metaphor for U.S. immigration policy, which has reeled in the face of an unprecedented wave of refugee migrants fleeing terrible conditions in Central American countries including El Salvador and Honduras.
